Sunday Fun

3rd August 2006

Analise squeals with delight sitting next to Olivia’s mom

Sunday was a fun day. It started out kind of sour for me as I was still running a small fever and not feeling well so Kristine took the kids to church and dinner at my parents’ house without me. I stayed home, got some work done on the computer, and rested. Later that afternoon, I was feeling good enough to take everyone to a “Build-A-Bear” birthday party that Analise was invited to by her friend from church, Olivia. This is a picture of everyone with their finished bears.

It was a near process. First, you picked out the bear that you wanted to stuff. Then you picked out a heart for your bear. Then you did a number of little things to teach the bear how to walk, how to run, how to eat, etc… Then you put the heart into the bear and attached it to this machine which injected feathers into the bear. Finally, your finished bear was placed in a takehome doghouse along with a birth certficate with all the bear’s stats. Here’s a few pictures from along the way

After the fun party, Kristine and I went over to Backyard Burger for a leisurely dinner. We got all kinds of free food for our cute kids! On the way over there Analise was singing Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star really well. I got some of it on video that I’m going to post in a little bit. Here’s some pictures from our dinner.

    Can’t wait to see you guys! I hope you have been showing Analise our pictures every night so that she doesn’t get freaked out by our ugly mugs when we show up. 🙂
